With the wine tour “From Corton to Chambertin”, we will show you the fascinating world of 1er and grand cru red wines of the Côte de Nuits. Sensation Vin has created this itinerant tasting exclusively for two people.
Every day (except Saturday), we will take you for 2 hours of itinerant tasting into the heart of the vineyards. Travelling in our Wrangler Jeep, you will experience the wines of Burgundy in prestigious surroundings. Two tasting stops in the heart of the great burgundian appellations await you in Vosne-Romanée and Chambolle-Musigny. As we drive through the different tracks, with the finest panoramic views over the vineyards, we will talk about oenology, the vegetative cycle, and the work in the vines; we will observe the implantation of the vines and the appellations in situ.
Between Corton and Chambertin you will taste 6 red wines, 4 1er cru wines and 2 grand cru wines. You will enjoy, without any doubt, unforgettable moments whilst tasting a Clos Vougeot Grand Cru whilst looking at the very vines from which it comes.
